Aside from being the "guy who shattered every frontend not named 'qmc2'", I don't much care *how* it's done. I just want it done.

I've tried and tried to get in touch with Aaron Giles to get his thoughts on this, but can't seem to get him.

I'm making headway on building my own RDP from RD parts. Well, I'm only planning to implement *one* side using Atari boards. Once I prove I can convert RD boards to RDP and make it talk to one side, then I'd like to see about adding the other side using a MAME machine. Then we'd be cooking with gas.

Unfortunately I'm at least three weeks away from Atari-based proof of concept hardware due to some travel I have to do.
